The Dukan Diet is a protein-based diet designed by French doctor Pierre Dukan. His reserve The Dukan Diet has sold globally more than 10 million copies. The diet is based on a summary of over 100 allowed foods, as well as four specific ground pillars also known as phases: attack, cruise, consolidation, and stabilization. The first “attack stage” when only protein and oat bran may be eaten. Dieters can choose from 72 low fat or low-fat meats (excluding pork and lamb), fish, chicken, eggs, soy, and nonfat dairy products. This is accompanied by the “Cruise” stage, that allows unlimited amounts of 28 non-starchy vegetables Carrots, peas, corn, and potatoes aren’t on this list of vegetables but come in the next thing.
Phase 3, “Consolidation,” allows unlimited proteins (including pork and lamb) and vegetables every day, along with one little bit of low-sugar fruits, 2 slices of whole-grain loaf of bread, and 1 portion of hard cheese. Dieters can also have 1-2 servings of starchy foods and 1-2 “celebration” meals weekly during this phase.
Phase 4, “Stabilization,” is the maintenance part of the plan. Combine the dietary plan with exercise to increase the benefit. Whether an hour a day in the weight room or just a 30-minute brisk walk every day, the added benefit of a regular exercise program really do increase and accelerate healthy weight loss.
